Nana Adomako, '21 MSIS
In one word, amazing. When I arrived at EMU, I had recently moved from Florida, I was unemployed, my mother had totaled my car, and I couldn’t even get an apartment so I can attend school. [Three years later] I left with two master’s degrees and offer for full-time employment from a fortune 50 technology firm. I can honestly say the experiences I had at EMU helped shape me into the man I am today. The problem-solving skills I learned, such as critical thinking and logical reasoning continually help me today in both work and life events. I learned the obstacle truly is the way from the challenges faced at EMU. From starting school part-time, with student loans and no transportation, to becoming a full-time student and earning a graduate assistantship, EMU provided challenges to prepare me for life and I will be forever grateful.
Haider Alrammahi, '19 MSIS Nabeela Jaffer, '15 MSIS
I enrolled as a part-time graduate student in Eastern Michigan University’s MSIS program in 2011 and graduated in April 2015. I was one of the nontraditional students, passionate about earning a graduate degree while raising children and working as a small business owner. My bachelor’s degree was a 3-year program in Computer Science from a university in Pakistan, and I did two additional undergrad semesters at another university in Texas. The bridge program at Eastern Michigan then provided me with the opportunity to enroll in a graduate program that allowed me to explore and fulfill my passion for pursuing higher education.
